Boca Royale Golf & Country Club Being Fully Renovated by Neal Communities

Monday, April 29, 2024  |  News

ENGLEWOOD, Fla. (April 25, 2024) – Neal Communities, southwest Florida’s premier, private homebuilder, is in the process of fully renovating the semi-private Boca Royale Golf & Country Club. Improvements are also underway on the golf course itself. Neal Communities acquired the gated, 1,000-acre community in 2012 and is building new homes on the undeveloped lots in the community in addition to renovating and improving the amenities.

Much of the work is completed on the clubhouse update, including the front lobby, restrooms and Palm Court, a vaulted-ceiling reception room suitable for weddings, brunches and cocktail events. The 19th Hole has been expanded from a small corner bar that seated seven to a larger rectangular bar that now seats 26 and features televisions and a view of the golf course. The member’s room has been updated to a library-themed lounge, and the outdoor covered dining area has been enlarged to now accommodate 102.

Refreshments were served in the Palm Court reception hall at the grand reopening celebration at Boca Royale Golf & Country Club on March 12.

A grand reopening party was held in March to celebrate the completion of the renovations on the clubhouse. Several hundred members, residents and guests attended over the course of the evening and enjoyed refreshments and music played by a DJ in the outside dining area.

“The number of improvements being made here are impressive,” said Doug Foote, general manager of Boca Royale Golf & Country Club. “Mr. Neal is making an investment in the facility for the existing and new members, and we are very excited about it. Feedback so far has been very positive.”

Work is also underway on the golf course. Changes will be made to a few of the holes to improve the flow of the course. Those changes will be designed by architect Gordon G. Lewis, a master golf course architect who has designed more than 80 courses in Florida. The greens, irrigation system, tee boxes and fairways will all be replaced. The new grass will be Seashore paspalum, which is popular for use as a fine turf on golf courses and is well suited for salty conditions.

The 19th Hole is the renovated and expanded bar area at the Boca Royale Golf & Country Club.

In addition, a new practice facility including a driving range and putting green is being added, and the golf and tennis Pro Shops and the cart barn are being rebuilt. A yoga studio and fitness class area is also being added. The golf course and other improvements are expected to reopen in November of this year.

“Many of our members are golfers and are looking forward to that,” said Foote. “And even those that don’t golf are really appreciating the improvements to the clubhouse and other facilities.”
